Review

?When you call it art, you can keep really hot photos right there on the coffee table. No one pulls this trick off like TASCHEN, the art-book publisher that made smut a cultural celebration. This new collection features the sexiest nudes you?re likely to see outside the pages of Penthouse, including work by Steve Diet Goedde, Natasha Merritt, Craig Morey, Dave Naz, and many others?and was compiled by acclaimed adult editor Dian Hanson and fetish photographer Eric Kroll. The international cast of visionaries captures the allure of women doing everything from eating ice cream or licking their own nipples to lounging languidly for a smoke or simply showing off a sumptuous behind; the book includes quotations from the photos articulating their inspiration.? Penthouse, New York

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Collection May 12 2007
By Buckaroo Banzai - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The book contains a variety of photographers, with each presenting a short series of well done photos, using many different models. The overall quality of the collection is outstanding. I was particularly impressed with the highly detailed nature of the photos. For devotees of erotic photography, I would definitely recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Erotic and Classy Sept. 28 2007
By Devin in Jacksonville - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This book is amazing. 600 hundred pages of pure beauty. Anyone who is not famaliar with erotic photographers, like myself, this is a wonderful book to start with. The cost of the book will set you back about the cost of a tank of gas. And unlike gas, you will have the book longer than a week. Every artist is a bit different from one another and shine in their own way. A great coffee table book. Except, i would absolutely put it away when the nephews are over, but not my parents. Classy and sexy. Buy this book now.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, This Isn't Very Erotic Photography March 18 2009
By James R. Holland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the most disappointing coffee table photography book I've ever received from TASCHEN. What a let down. The most interesting photographs in the book are some of the historic samples. The best of the so-called new erotic photographs were from attorney Joan Sinclair's book on Japanese Sex Clubs. True to TASCHEN's usual high quality standards, this collection is beautifully printed and bound, but so many of the pictures are so similar. It's like the censors had risen from the dead and the book ends up filled with rather boring, often sexless photographs. The pictures are almost all of females with only an occasional male being used as a sex toy/slave. I guess men aren't considered erotic? I guess hot teenage hetrosexual couples lusting after each other aren't considered erotic either. This collection was also lacking even an iota of romance. Some of the excellent photographers included in this slick collection have taken what this reviewer considers much more erotic images. Sadly those pictures are not to be found in this collection. I'm sorry to report that 90% of these pictures were boring. There were almost no sexy fetish images or fashions included. There was little fantasy or dreamy eroticism. There were no soft-focus, cotton-candy moody photos. And the weird colored dreamscapes of Jan Saudek don't really fill this void. Thank goodness for Mike James adding a little humor in his pin-up series. Ditto for Olaf Martens who seems to be aiming to become the heir to the Helmut Newton style. The photographs by Ralph Gibson were among the strongest images in the book, although his erotic work is not exactly new-who can forget his wonderful and very famous feather tickling photo that is not in this book. Alla Esipovich provided the book's geriatric senior citizen model pin-ups. I suppose somebody will find those images erotic? According to this collection, girdles seem to have made a major comeback in women's fashion? Panty hose, getting tattooed and little girl's white panties with flower prints hanging on the clothes line are now very erotic. (No slight to Japanese men intended here). There were too many snapshots of partially nude, gutter-tough-looking broads with lots of piercings and tattoos smoking cigarettes and cigars. This appears to be an editing problem or perhaps not enough variety was submitted. But how can that be, this is one of the most photographed subjects on the planet? There were few, if any, beautiful, subtle pictures of people actually doing the deed included. In fact, there was almost no subtly in this entire volume. If this is the best of new erotic photography, then that field has gone to Hell in a hand basket. Much of eroticism exists between the ears and there was little or no mental stimulation, flirting, or come-hither looks and promising smiles captured in this picture collection. It had too many ultra-sharp images of flesh that reminded the viewer more of a meat market or a morgue than eroticism. I'd send the book back for a refund, but I collect all the TASCHEN Photography Books, even this one. I trust we won't have to make these kinds of allowances very often with one of the best photography publishers in the world. I'm so disappointed. Ugh!

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Go wrong here May 1 2008
By Z. Rodrigues - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is so full of great photography from so many talented contributors that anyone can find something to titillate and amuse them. There's no accounting for taste ofcourse but no matter what you crave theres a morcel for each and everyone included in this book. It covers the Mild to Wild territory. From fantastic to grotesque, from beautiful to baffling, from realistic to surreal....well need I say more? A great addition to anyone's collection of erotic photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Photography Nov. 20 2010
By Beccanoel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really like the way this book is set up. There are about 4-5 images per photographer, with a brief bio about them. It's like a sampling of tons of different artists. It opens your eyes to which photographer you might want to look into & purchase more books. Great idea. A great book of photography.
